What Murray did in Paris ......


Murray has been in Paris for the past week with Kermit! (well his Mom & Dad were with them too!) - No Clive, but at 9 years old Clive is starting to get tired working and a week of sightseeing, shopping and then Disneyland Paris would have been too much for him.  So Clive stayed at home and was very well looked after there ....

He sulked mind you and couldn't wait for Murray to return.  He really missed Murray and likewise Murray really missed having Clive with him.  But Kermit did help!  In fact, Kermit the frog helped a lot - Murray was able to talk to him all the time, just like he talks to Clive.  He was able to hug him for re-assurance and he was able to show 'Kermit' the sights.  It wasn't quite as good as having Clive but it certainly helped that Murray had Kermit with him.

Paris is like a giant film-set for Murray - just like in New York, Murray associated everywhere he visited with some of his favourite films!  He just loved going from one famous place to the next ....

So Murray and Kermit walked Paris .....


They checked out all those famous places - like Notre-Dame (The Hunchback of Notre-Dame 1 and 2 plus The Muppets Movie and Mr Bean's Holiday)


There were lots of tourists everywhere! June in Paris was very busy but it was okay! Murray and Kermit managed the crowds ....


Murray particularly loved the Arc de Triomphe - so Kermit was happy to oblige and go there too! (Mr Bean's Holiday and the original Muppet's Movie)


Crossing the Champs Elysées can be a bit dangerous so Kermie sat up on Dad's shoulder!


Murray explained all about the tomb of the Unknown Soldier to Kermit ....


Kermit was very impressed!


Kermit found travelling around on the Big Bus was a great way to see as many of those sights that Murray had on his list in the quickest possible time ....


Murray was thrilled with the Tour Eiffel - he particularly adores the Tour Eiffel (almost as much as the Statue of Liberty) - (well, it did feature in the Muppets movie, the original one!! and Mr Bean's Holiday, Ratatouille, The Smurfs 2, A Monster in Paris)


After the Eiffel Tower the boys went to the Louvre - Murray wanted to see the Mona Lisa! (Looney Tunes back in action)



Murray & Kermit loved the Louvre ....


But Paris is a big city with a lot to see and after a few days the boys were worn out ....


It was time to move on to Disneyland Paris and see if Kermit could find any more of the Muppets there ....

- Clive & Murray

*Murray did mention whilst leaving Paris, that Kermit and himself needed to also see Berlin, Madrid and London (just like in the Muppet's Most Wanted movie) but that's for another day!!

  4. some great photo bombing on those pictures - did anyone spot the idiot in the striped top.
    Kermit was great for the photos as he never complained and is very photogenic.
    Was a great couple of days in Paris which is a beautiful city and Murray practiced his little French with great pride.
